A spokesman for the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that a final report would be delayed as detectives awaited toxicology results on the body of Liz Neuman, the final victim from the Oct. 8 incident. Neuman, 49, of Prior Lake, Minn., died at Flagstaff Medical Center on Oct. 17 of multiple organ failure, according to her attorney.
A U.S. senator from Minnesota on Tuesday called for a federal investigation into whether Ray violated any laws, including false advertising about the retreat.
Investigators have said they are focusing on Ray and anyone else involved in organizing the sweat-lodge ceremony, as they tried to determine if negligence caused the deaths.
